Considering Traditional Options

Until recently, most dentists considered conventional bridges the primary choice to replace missing teeth. While a close majority no longer considers traditional bridges the ideal tooth replacement, slightly less than half of dental professionals do not suggest dental implants. Before agreeing to a bridge, denture, or partial denture, consider a second opinion if your dentist does not recommend dental implants. You need to make a truly informed decision, so seek out all of the facts before ruling out any option.

According to research, the average dental bridge lasts from seven to ten years, whereas partials and dentures last an average of five years. This data doesn’t address the fact that when these procedures fail, they typically cause more dental problems and tooth loss.
